Karl Linke



Karl Gunther Linke was born December 9, 1929 in Gera, Germany, the second of six children.

Early on October 21 with his daughter by his side, and his faith secure, he slipped away from this life to be welcomed by Jesus and those who have gone before.

Karl settled in Edmonton and in 1963 met and fell in love with his wonderful wife Carol. They were married May 16, 1964. Karl was a loyal, hard-working man of integrity who showed genuine love and care for all those dear to him. He demonstrated his enjoyment and expert knowledge of the outdoors by activities such as hunting (and guiding), fishing, and gardening. Karl excelled in multiple trades and talents, including making delicious meals! Karl was sadly predeceased by his loving wife Carol in 2008.

He is survived and dearly missed by his son, Gary, of Edmonton, daughter Susanne (Mark) of Texas; four grand-children, Callie Linke, Scott, Daniel and Luke DeMattia; daughter Christine (Manfred) Seliger (son Steven) of Germany; sisters, Kathe Dienel, Margot (Klaus) Uhle of Germany and many other relatives.

Those that wish to pay their respects may do so beginning at 9:00 a.m., followed by the Funeral Service at 10:00 a.m. Saturday, October 26, at Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home, 4820 Meridian Street, Edmonton.

Please direct all memorial donations to "The Christian and Missionary Alliance" (Lisa Rohrick, Niger Africa project), 30 Carrier Dr.,Suite 100, Toronto, ON M9W 5T7.

In Loving Memory of
Karl Linke
